Lisa.. this is my meatloaf....

1 1/2 lbs of chopped chuck...or (80/20 mix)
1cup herb Pepperidge farm stuffing... ( more if you like)( blue bag)
1/2 cup diced green peppers (optional)
1/2 cup caramelized onion ( optional) or 1/4 teaspn onion powder
1 - 8 oz can Hunt's tomato sauce
1T Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspn pepper
3 eggs

Mix all ingredients with with 1/2 of the tomato sauce...

Put mix in loaf pan.......pour remaining tomato sauce over the meat loaf
Bake 400 degrees for 1 hour....

For gravy....

Melt 2 T butter in a fry pan, (If you have pan drippings add them) add enough flour to absorb the butter, cook a few min, then add 1cup water or low sodium beef broth. Stir and cook and if you want a thinner gravy, add more broth. Add a 1/2 teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet seasoning. Stir, taste... add salt and pepper if needed. Serve over meat loaf and potatoes.

I like this gravy because I can make it any time I want and control the salt content. I find packaged gravies too salty.
